2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Stephanie Martineau on November 11, 2008
Format: Paperback
I read this book to learn what records might exist for a divorce and dower in connection with genealogy research. It is extremely thorough and detailed for the several states Salmon researched. It was very enlightening about the legal status of women, especially how their situations varied state to state. Some readers may find the book a rough go--the law can be a very dry subject. As an attorney myself, I appreciated the hair splitting differences she presented. I found even the notes and extensive bibliography useful for locating other materials to read.

This book is an indispensable guide to the complicated legal terrain of early America as it pertains to women. Salmon surveys a range of states and details their particular legal cultures, which were varying combinations of English common law, equity law, and local innovation. She explores the history and logic of each system and its strengths and limitations in offering women control over property. An extremely valuable book as a reference source, it is also a fascinating look at how several colonies and states struggled to use the law to protect and subordinate women.
